Nice Layout, Conditions were So-So.

Overall, decent course. Pace of play was veryyyyy slow. Not recommended if you don't have patience to wait on every hole. Irritated greens made putting impossible.

The only complaint I have is the party in front of us were extremely slow. And the aeration holes at the flag made the ball bounce way too much

Unfriendly Staff

We played early afternoon, and there weren’t many players starting after us. We get halfway down the fairway, and the ranger already comes up to us asking if we’re “new golfers”, and told us we need to pick up the pace on the first hole… As there is nobody on the tee behind us. We ended up catching the group ahead of us who started before we even got there. Then when we hit the turn we were stopped by the ranger to check our receipt. I have never been stopped in the middle of my round to check a receipt especially since we already had a cart. We just felt harassed and hurried the whole round.

Good but not $60 good

Good municipal style course. Back nine plays harder than the front. Fairways and greens okay. Lots of debris on green but it was pretty windy. Overall not a bad course but I would not pay $60 a person again to play there. Much better courses for that kind of money.

Clueless starter

We showed up early for our tee time hoping to sneak out early. Asked if we could tee off the back instead of waiting for our scheduled time, totally understand that sometimes this can mess things up. Told we could not because they were so many people making the turn. Waited for our tee time for over an hour And watched one twosome hit the turn, beyond frustrating. We offered to play the back 2 times or wherever was easier

Shawnee's rough is not as impossible as at Sleepy Hollow and Big Met. Some spots it is penal as it should be, but not ridiculous for the average golfer. Greens were a little shaky as the sand filling the aeration holes was nowhere near uniform. Fairways are tight but again, with rough being fair that wasn't a big problem. Had a great day in beautiful weather. Shawnee's layout is interesting
